How many rivets?
I have a presentation to my local Rotary club next Thursday on what it took to build my RV-8. I thought I had seen an approximate number before but can't recall. Approximately how many rivets involved to build a typical Vans aircraft. I know how many manhours, dollars and elapsed time, 9 years, 9 months and change but didn't keep track of the rivets.
